We all know Yogi had a rough time in the 1970's mainly because it seemed that H-B execs just didn't seem to know what to do with him when his old show ended. He was big star for them so it's natural that they wanted to keep him in the spotlight; but Yogi's Gang, Yogi's Space Race and Galaxy Goof-ups were really bad vehicles for him. With 'Gang', the concept was admirable...it's just that they used the wrong character. Yogi was never meant to be a goody two-shoes thus they ended up watering him and the rest of the characters down. And it didn't help that the majority of the 'villains' were just lame... but I digress. With 'Space Race' and 'Goof-ups' , many here have said they were created to cash in on the Star Wars craze which was understandable but in doing so, that left both shows terribly dated- particularly 'Goof-ups' with it's disco dance scenes. Now I wasn't born in the 70's but I did catch these shows in re-runs and I admit 'Space Race' and 'Goof-ups' were guilty pleasures but didn't really do the character justice. Yogi's not really a hard character to write for, it's just the matter of putting him in ideal situations. So I guess my questions are: Couldn't Hanna-Barbera have come up with better spin-offs with Yogi Bear during this period? What could they have done better?
